MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Kans. — New jobs are coming to a southeast Kansas community.

Kansas Governor Laura Kelly says an agribusiness company called Bartlett is investing about 325 million dollars to build a new soybean crushing facility in Montgomery County that will employ 50 workers when complete. She says the new operation will be able to process about 38.5 million bushels a year, creating refined soybean oil for renewable fuels, food products and animal feed.
